__CMS milestone

I still haven’t decided on a name for my CMS, though I have a couple of good ideas that I’m going to think about in the next couple days/weeks. On the same note I’m also considering a name for my company. My First/Last name works well enough, but I’d like something a bit more formal sounding, and since my San Diego business tax is going to be due soon, now is a good time to decide on something official.

On to the milestone: The CMS is finally at a point where the content management works all on its own. New pages and content can all be edited/added/deleted from within the CMS itself. There are still several major things required on the backend, but a significant number of those items should take a very small amount of time to fix/implement (for example, only displaying navigation links to pages a user has privileges for).

Items of development to come soon:

  1. User registration
  2. Admin: User/Group management
  3. File Uploads

I will reveal more details of the CMS features as it nears completion – probably early winter (January?). I will say this – a LOT of work has already been done on framework-like functionality so adding new things is going pretty quickly.

This CMS will be used on a number of the websites I’m developing into the future, so it’s important I pay a lot of attention to detail up front – the very reason it’s taking me so long to produce! Seriously – the first CMS I ever wrote only took a couple weeks full-time to program and fit into very simple templates. This one, however, will blow that one out of the water!.

  1. Planning on it… eventually. The first real test will be on my church’s website redesign this winter. Once that’s well underway I can focus on getting the CMS website up to speed.
